I write this blog late because I’ve been dealing with illness for a few weeks. Since True Health is my dharma, it has been quite a different experience than my “usual” illnesses. As a person missing a functioning immune system, I know all too well that every day is a gift. Every day spent not feeling sick is a gift as well. Actually, I found out I’m 10 years past my life expectancy – WOW! Looking through obituaries had me thinking, why am I still here?
Scroll V of Og’s book hit home for me ‘Why have I been allowed to live this extra day (or decade) when others, better than I, have departed? Is it that they have accomplished their purpose while mine is yet to be achieved?’ THAT’S IT! My purpose is yet to be achieved. How fabulous is it that at this stage of my life I get another chance. Honestly, before this course (and finding the business of my dreams..), I had no purpose. I was just trying to be a good person, stay alive and enjoy whatever I could.
Why else would I have been blessed with the gifts of extra time and a business I love other than God wanting me to find and achieve my purpose of helping others. Why else would this course have found its way to me?
Before MKE every illness sent me into a state of depression and fear thinking that this might the ‘one’; the illness that takes me out and sends me to hang out with all of my deceased loved ones. This time, I started to head down the dark road of despair, but the many tools we’ve learned have taught me to take a U-Turn and remember to be ‘whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.’ I can be what I WILL to be and I WILL be healthy, no…. I AM healthy and the first person cured of this disease.
I no longer fear death. I only fear dying with my song still in my heart.
